Up-to-the minute fight card changes for UFC Fight Night Live in Seattle on March 26th
Garcia-Zombie II Agreed to for UFN Seattle updated March 16th
A broken foot has sidelined Nam Phan from his March 26 rematch with Leonard Garcia, so Chan Sung Jung, “The Korean Zombie”, has agreed to face the “Bad Boy” in a rematch of a 2010 fight Joe Rogan described as “The Fight of The Decade.”

“Nam Phan is injured so “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung has agreed to step up against Leonard Garcia and attempt to avenge a controversial decision in what was one of the greatest all-time slugfests,” said UFC President Dana White.

Johnson in for Wilks against Sadollah
updated March 13th
Following a knee injury suffered by James Wilks, welterweight prospect Amir Sadollah will now get a third opponent for his UFC Fight Night bout on March 26th, as The Ultimate Fighter season nine finalist DaMarques Johnson will step in for the Seattle matchup. Sadollah’s original foe, Duane Ludwig, was forced out of the event on March 5th.

Hendricks replaces Hallman updated March 5th
UFC President Dana White announced today that there’s another change to March 26th’s UFC Fight Night event in Seattle, with welterweight Dennis Hallman joining Duane Ludwig on the injury list.

"Dennis Hallman is out of UFC Fight Night March 26 with a knee injury,” said White. “Powerful wrestler Johny Hendricks has verbally agreed to replace him against submission specialist TJ Waldburger in a preliminary fight."

Hendricks, a four-time All-American wrestler from Oklahoma State University, is looking to bounce back from his first pro loss last December, a hard-fought decision to Rick Story. Submission specialist Waldburger will look to make it two in a row later this month.

Wilks in for Ludwig updated March 5th
Due to an injured sternum, Duane "Bang" Ludwig has been forced to withdraw from his UFC Fight Night bout with Amir Sadollah. Verbally agreeing to step in for Ludwig in the Seattle bout is The Ultimate Fighter season nine winner James Wilks.

Said UFC President Dana White, “Bang Ludwig is out with an injured sternum but James Wilks has verbally agreed to step up against Amir Sadollah for UFC Fight Night March 26. TUF 7 winner VS TUF 9 winner. Should be fun.”
